The introduction of aromatherapy in geriatrics

Lucile introduced aromatherapy in 2011 to prevent winter respiratory conditions and relieve certain conditions: extreme agitation, stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, pain, bruising, nausea and vomiting, migraines. Patients in these departments, looking for non-drug alternatives, showed real satisfaction: relief from headaches, wellness, easier sleep and comfort in an often very dense care pathway.

The grant made it possible to extend the practice to two other department (after-care/rehabilitation and long-term care) with a total of 120 beds.
